Where did you get the weapons for the cars? I used what the guns from Mech Warrior plastic things. But that's not the most effective way of getting weapons... and they're not that cool.
We got the weapons from a number of sources and started out by rummaging through our bits boxes. For the most part they are made from:
*Stan Johansen 20mm post apocalyptic vehicle weapon packs (from: http://www.stanjohansenminiatures.com/
*Plastic Ork vehicle guns and turrets from Epic 40K
*Converted and non-converted 40K weapons (i.e. lasguns, bolters, flamers)
*15mm WWII machine guns and various cannons and anti-tank guns.
*Some Battletech missile pods and small turrets.
We also used pasticard to add armor plating to the cars and also used window screen to add mesh “netting” to windows. It’s fun converting Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars and at about only $1 US per vehicle its cost effective too!
Nice looking game. I really like the ice cream truck. Reminds of me of game I used to play on the console that had an ice cream truck... can't remember the name of the game though.
One of the players also mentioned that it reminded him of the game “Twisted Metal”. The clown head on the top of the ice cream truck comes from a HorrorClix figure, so it has a nice menacing look to it which suits the vehicle well. I couldn’t resist modeling a flame thrower onto that vehicle as it seemed like the perfect weapon for an evil ice cream truck.
Can't beat post-apoc car wars. How long did it take for the game to play out?
We ran the event for about 2-3 hours total, with some walk-up players joining in as time went along. We’ll definitely run this again at future conventions and I think it would fit well into anything from a 2 to 4 hour time slot.
